These lecture and group activities introduce students to theories of international migration, and ways to apply theories to social problems. They will allow students to understand the motivations, which cause people to migrate, the processes through which they make a decision, and contexts in which migrants are situated in micro, meso, and macro level. Students will familiarize themselves with the conditions of receiving countries and cities, including local economic growth, ethnic communities, and proximity to home countries. The primary purpose of this session is to teach students about various local economic, cultural, and social contexts that shape the arrival of immigrants in the USA, as well as individual aspirations and families’ household economic situations, along with global hierarchy and economic inequalities that exist across different countries. An instructor will focus students’ attention on the topic by making them work on group activities, and conclude the session with a short PowerPoint presentation.
